Accidental Stencil

The Documented Life Project November Theme:

Stencils, Stamps & Masks

November 7 Art Challenge:  Stencils – Made or Bought

Journal Prompt:  On the edge of uncertainty…

* * *

Thrift shop find…an unopened package of 3″ square Momenta Designer Labels…priceless!

After printing an entire sheet of Christmas labels, I carefully peeled off the delicate label waste and laid it down onto both blank journal pages…perfect fit!

Next, I spritzed the pages with Dylusions Ink Spray in Fresh Lime and when dry, peeled it off.  Left with blank white lines, I journaled horizontally and vertically then outlined each square with a regular, No. 2 pencil.  After adding some paper ephemera, I used mini alpha rubber stamps to spell, “accidental stencil,” then gave a couple of spritzes of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Rich Mocha.

With the tip of a black India ink dropper, I journaled the DLP Prompt then finished it off with a palette knife smattering of burnt umber heavy body acrylic through a journal line stencil.

I love to end my work with a light sprinkle of bright fine glitter and let it stick to whatever’s still wet. Done!

Not uncertain, but certainly accidental!  Thank you, ladies!  e.
